I didn’t explore different kinds of food until I was in college. Before that it was Italian food and American classics all the way. But then I discovered sushi (<3), and Indian cuisine.
In college I lived with lots of dirty boys. I had my own bedroom, of course, but my 5 roommates were dirty, dirty boys. In fact, until Hubby, I didn’t think it was possible that boys could be clean (as in capable of doing their dishes, showering, cleaning something.. anything.. ever). It’s funny now because Hubby is waaay tidier than I am (and has always been).
But the one redeeming thing about living with those boys (aside from giving me a lifetime of classic stories to tell) was that I lived walking distance to the most amazing restaurants.
One of my favorites, and most frequented, was an Indian restaurant. Between curries, naan, and samosas, I was in heaven.
I have been craving those heavenly samosas lately, and came up with this healthied up, easy, and super delicious option to get my fix. I think you are going to approve.
Health highlights of cauliflower: cauliflower is anti-inflammatory which means it can help reduce the risk of heart disease, Alzheimer’s, even depression (which is still being researched further to explore the inflammation-depression link). As a part of the cruciferous family (with broccoli) cauliflower contains potent anti-cancer compounds. It also supports the body’s detoxification process.
